From TV Wise:

EXCLUSIVE: Established stage actress Audrey Brisson has joined the cast of Starz’s hit period drama Outlander for its upcoming second season, TVWise has learned. The 13 episode second season is now in production in Scotland for a 2016 premiere on Starz.

More after the jump!

Brisson will play Sister Angelique, a nun at L’Hopital Des Anges in Paris. As fans of the book series will know, L’Hopital Des Anges is a key location, with Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) volunteering – as well as ultimately being treated – at the hospital in the second book. For now this is a guest starring role, but I’m told it has the potential to become a recurring one.

Outlander’s second season, which will run “at least” 13 episodes, is based on Dragonfly In Amber, the second book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novel series, and follows Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) in Paris, France, as they attempt to prevent the Jacobite uprisings, which Claire knows will end in disaster.

  1. Is the Fall 2015 season 2 premiere comment correct?!?!? I have always heard sometime in 2016.

  2. If they want Outlander to be considered for the proper awards, they have to show some of the episodes in 2016. I’m still hoping for April.

  3. Reblogged this on Ana Fraser Lallybroch Blog.

  4. You haven’t been wrong before. I do hope she’ll be more resemblance of Jamie, tall and red headed with fiesty.

  5. Can’t wait to see who they get for Mother Hildegard. She has to be a very imposing French nun. They have already cast Bouton. Cute little dog.

  6. Pinned onto Outlander the Series.
